Meryl Streep brought the house down at Sunday night’s Golden Globes as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement. Though many other presenters and winners, plus host Jimmy Fallon, brought up the political division that has been simmering in America lately, nobody did it like Streep.
After an emotional introduction from Viola Davis, Streep spoke about the role actors, and the press, have to play in a Trump administration. She also took time to reference her fellow actors and how they bring different perspective and backgrounds to their art. And at the end, she gave a tribute to her late friend, Carrie Fisher, who always had the right thing to say when times got tough.
